Compact, user-friendly scroll saw is perfect for small workshops and tabletops, is easy to set up and use, and goes from handheld to stationary in seconds.

MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – January 1, 2013 — The Dremel®brand is introducing the Moto-Saw™, an innovative cutting tool for hobbyists, crafters and light DIYers. The Dremel Moto-Saw is the only tool that converts from a stationary scroll saw to a handheld portable coping saw with the touch of a button. Compact, portable and easy to use, the Moto-Saw is an exciting new solution for completing craft, hobby and household projects, from model building to woodworking to light repairs.

"The Moto-Saw reinvents precision cutting and is an innovative solution for today's hobbyist and DIYer," said Edward Pchola, Dremel Director of Product Marketing. "This space-saving saw is easy to set up and store, powerful enough to make precise cuts in a variety of materials, and fun for users of all experience levels."

Available in January, the Moto-Saw is two convenient saws in one—a stationary yet easily portable scroll saw that easily attaches to any table, including bench-tops and kitchen counter tops, and also converts to a lightweight, detachable handheld coping saw. The tool features a clamp base that quickly attaches to various sizes of tables, benches and other surfaces. With the push of a button, the easy-to-detach coping saw allows the tool to be used in hand practically anywhere. An extra long, nine-foot cord ensures ample mobility when tackling projects.

The kit includes four different saw blades, the Dremel Moto-Saw can easily and precisely cut through a variety of materials, including wood, laminate, plastic and thin metal. The auto-tensioning QuickChange™ mechanism allows users to quickly and easily switch blades without the need of a wrench, while also keeping the blade taught, reducing the need to make blade adjustments.

The Dremel Moto-Saw offers a high-speed motor with variable speed (1,500–2,250 SPM) control for optimal cutting in a variety of materials. The saw has a slim, ergonomic handle with comfort grip and weighs just 2.4 pounds, so users can spend more time enjoying their favorite hobbies and crafts, while exploring their creative side. An included dust port adapter attaches to most household vacuum cleaners to the Moto-Saw, keeping the work space clean and maintaining a clear line of sight.

"The Moto-Saw is a simple-to-use and space-saving solution over traditional scroll and coping saws," said Pchola. "Now families can find inspiration and enjoy their favorite hobbies and crafts together, and more often, with the simplicity and versatility of this saw."

Traditional scroll saws are bulky, difficult to set up and adjust, and expensive for non-professional users. The Dremel Moto-Saw tool is part of convenient kit that includes one attachment and 10 genuine Dremel accessories, ensuring users can tackle nearly any cutting application, from household repairs to hobby and craft projects. The Moto-Saw kit comes in a durable storage case for superior attachment and accessory organization and storage that lets you take your Moto-Saw anywhere.

The Dremel Moto-Saw (MS20-01) will be available beginning in January 2013 on and at Lowe's home improvement centers, for a suggested retail price of $99.99 USD and $119.99 CAD.
